Tomato Sauce

Kitchen – Hob


  • 1 tin tomatoes
  • Red lentils
  • Sachet of tomato paste
  • Worcester sauce
  • Hot English mustard
  • Italian herbs


  • Tin opener
  • Saucepan
  • Wooden spoon


Rinse the lentils thoroughly and place in saucepan on a medium heat. Once lentils have started to soften (around 10 mins at a rolling boil) add in the tin of tomatoes, tomato paste, two teaspoons of Worcester sauce, one flat teaspoon of hot English mustard and a heaped teaspoon of Italian herbs. Simmer for 15 mins and turn off heat.


Serve over pasta with a sprinkle of parmesan.

This sauce improves overnight so I will often make up a batch to do several meals. It works well for lasagne and as a tomato base for pizza.
